Lethal Weapon Finds A New Co-Lead With Seann William Scott

Adjust Comment Print

'Lethal Weapon is packed with action, drama and pure fun and we can't wait to see Damon and Seann together on screen.

Crawford's contract to play Martin Riggs was not renewed two weeks after two on-set incidents for which he was reprimanded were brought to light. Will he survive and leave to Texas with Molly and her boy, or will season 3 premiere with us being bystanders to Rigg's funeral? You fired Clayne Crawford and you're keeping Damon Wayans who unprofessionally went on a tweeting spree about how fans should move on from Clayne?

Clayne had been disciplined twice for poor behaviour, both incidences saw him reacting with anger to situations which led to him seeking therapy and, on one occasion, donate a portion of his pay packet to the other party.

Following reports that he'd created a hostile work environment on the set of Fox's Lethal Weapon, after which he issued an apology for jeopardizing the future of the series, Clayne Crawford has officially been replaced for the show's third season, and fans are not happy about the decision. (McG directed the pilot episode from a script by Matt Miller.) The series is backed by Warner Bros. The first two seasons are available to stream on Hulu. The news is now in from Fox and there's good and bad news for fans of the show. Based on the film series starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, Lethal Weapon is averaging more than 8 million viewers on multi-platform viewing. I appreciate and respect the work of everyone involved.

Stifler's about to get a "Lethal Weapon". Fox's stipulation was that, should Lethal Weapon continue, the role of Riggs would be recast, and the show has spent the weekend in limbo as multiple actors auditioned for the open role.

The is the first series regular role for Scott, who first broke out as part of the American Pie franchise but who has shown considerable range through films like Role Models, The Rundown, and Goon. As of just a few days ago, Crawford's Instagram posts also revealed he hadn't heard anything from the network and expressed hope he wasn't being fired.
